James Braid

James Braid was a designer and remodeller of golf courses active in the early-20th century. Braid was born in Earlsferry, Fife, Scotland on 6 February 1870 and died 27 November 1950. He began his career in St. Andrews, Scotland as a joiner and moved to England to become a club maker in 1893. Braid later turned professional golfer, winning five Open Golf Championships between 1901 and 1910. He was a founder, and later President, of the Professional Golfers' Association and, in 2002, was inducted into the Scottish Sports Hall of Fame.
